This year my son was enamored of Advent calendars -the idea of getting a little something 
every day from Hanukkah to Christmas. He also wanted to give them as gifts to his friends. 
He came up with the idea of a calendar that contained Magic: the Gathering cards. This was 
a great rainy-day-off school project for the two of us. We put it together using paper and tape 
(and the cards, of course) in just about an hour or so.

Step 3 

• Cut 24 "pocket" pieces (2"x3"). You could also probably use post-it notes. 

• Tape the pockets onto the grid using the single-sided tape. 

Step 4 

• Using a card you don't care about as a guide, put the card in the pocket and score around 
the top half. 

• Do not score all the way around; leave some parts uncut. Also, don't cut the tape from the 
pocket above.
